Ardbeg has been voted the Best Whisky in the World, three years in a row. And in the world of Ardbeg, peat is important. For it is this soggy, unassuming matter which gives Ardbeg its famous flavor. Ardbeg is the peatiest and smokiest of all the Islay malts, yet has a fruity floral sweetness and complexity to the spirit. If you haven’t tried an Ardbeg yet, you are missing out on the magic that is peated whisky. Remarkable stuff.
